Even if you take The Machine at face value (The Matrix w/puppets), it’s hard to miss its morality play angle; it’s otherwise a gorgeous stop-motion film styled like an old-time nickel arcade.
It’s essentially an ad for their PEN cameras, but Olympus’ PEN Story itself merits a story: it’s a stop-motion video composed of 9,600 developed prints out of a total of 60,000 shots.
The one thing better than real fireworks is fireworks you can eat: PES’ aptly-named Fireworks is a short but “sweet” stop-motion film with exploding Candy Corn, Sour Balls and Peeps.
Breno Pineschi’s Suco de Laranja is a stop-motion video that uses oranges, melba toast and a juice squeezer to create a synthesizer that any DJ would love to take for a spin.
Evelien Lohbeck’s Notebook is a series of reality-questioning animated shorts that are themselves encapsulated in a stop-motion short; anyone else feeling a bit M.C. Escher-ish?
Iron Man vs. Bruce Lee is an odd smackdown, but we’re still glad Patrick Bolvin created this awesome stop-motion video; a mystery third (and fourth) party is revealed at the end.
While this Scintillation video is no doubt beautiful, it’s the method that’s most amazing: it’s a 35,000 shot stop-motion film with fantastic DoF focus shifts and live projection mapping.
Made with a ton of books and paper cutouts, This Is Where We Live is a stop-motion short film shot over three weeks this past Fall using a home-made dolly and still camera.
We’ve seen plenty of stop-motion vids, but this music video directed by Cesar Kuriyama takes the cake, with 45,000 images shot by a Nikon D200 over the course of 14 months.
More tilt-shifting: The Little People is a collection of photographs with miniature figures in often comedic (and occasionally macabre) situations throughout London, by Slinkachu.
This commercial for Dutch game retailer Bol.com is on permanent repeat in our office; we just can’t stop laughing, even though there’s a poor little girl in it. Please don’t hate us for being evil.
We’ve been having a bit too much fun with light painting lately, but we can’t help it: this trippy stop-motion 4th of July video by Jon Thomas is perfectly set to MGMT’s “Kids”.
